I would be more than happy to check out my friends page, however I cannot do so without signing up, wherefore the statement is a lie, I cannot check it out, I must sign up, if the email said, sign up, I would not be calling it a spammer.

Bait and switch spam, I must sign up to look at my friend, this is the lie, I cannot Check out profile of my friend, it is not available to see.

Viral marketing spam, truly this is an invasion of my privacy, goodwill by trying to market at the expense of my friend. Therefore, if I do my friend a favor, and look at his or her, afterwords for the next 10 years, I receive more junk from

I need and opt out feature,
“NEVER receive another email from”

Ooops, I found one, I decided I HAD TO READ THEIR ADVERTISING CRAP to do this blog, they forced me to learn about, I really call this company annoying. They are not transparently allowing my friend to use his page, he must make me also sign up, this is not the way the internet has become popular, by forcing participation.

Anyway I do it, I am forced to learn about these social networks, I really cannot be bothered, they are not what I wish to do in this lifetime.

Facebook tries hard to not be spammy. The reason you have to sign up is not because it's viral marketing, it's for privacy; on facebook, the default privacy setting only allows your friends (who are logged in) to see your profile.

If you don't like facebook, you can add a rule to your email spam filter to filter out all email from I tried to find your email address but I couldn't, so I don't know what type you use, but I use GMail and it allows me to do that easily.

I recommend getting a facebook. It is not full of spam at all; it's a great way to interact with your friends. You are one of my role models and I think it would be awesome if you had a facebook. Another traveler whose blog I read, Christian, has a facebook, which I think is pretty cool. You can always set privacy settings to change what people are allowed to see.

I hate spam too, but Facebook's not bad at all.

Why do I have to do all the work, this is why I say it is spammy. It is forceing me to stop them.

I clicked the link to not send me any more.

The list of social networks grows daily, in the end, I have decided just to write and call my friends. I spend all my time developing my one book... where my face is not located THIS BLOG.

I think the art of life is to do one thing the best you can. I am a real traveler, I have trouble maintaining the blog format. I am do not wish to distribute my time in 10 locations, I do one book of my face, it it here.

These sites will slowly dilute to the point of no interest or there will be the new one that takes it places.

I still think they are spammy, if I get any more emails, I will know they are.

Social networks try to give the feeling of real life. I encourage people to go live, not to be on the internet. This blog is meant to be ten minutes of entertainment, not a place to enter and go play.

The "Check out my Facebook" emails don't come from Facebook.

I have not joined Facebook and I am 100 percent sure they spam people. I can connect my yahoo email to Facebook, and I can choose to send to every person in my box to see if they want to join Facebook. I do not want these invitations sent buy everybody I know, anyway you do it, Facebook is spammy.

It is just a spam that people do not mind, but I do mind, so I see it clearly, it is the same as the other spam, they want me to do something to benefit facebook.
